lyrics

This is a song about a man
Who wants to lend a helping hand
He doesn't play by all the rules
He's mistaken for a fool
This is a song about a man

This is a song about a lie
One that's been told for all of time
A lie that says we are alone
And we can make it on our own
This is a song about a lie

And the irony abounds
And what was lost has now been found
And the lie becomes truth
As the myth finds its proof

This is a song about their land
Something that's nothing more than sand
And yet it's taken all their lives
And it's never satisfied
This is a song about their land

This is a song about their freedom
And all the trouble that it brings them
They are never really free
They all bow down upon a knee
This is a song about their freedom

And the irony abounds
And what was lost has now been found
And the lie becomes truth
As the myth finds its proof

This is a song about us all
About a life after the Fall
About what we all have done
We can't blame it on no one
This is a song about us all

This is a song about Redemption
In spite of all our nagging questions
About a Love we cannot see
but never fails to set us free
This is a song about Redemption

And the irony abounds
And what was lost has now been found
And the lie becomes truth
As the myth finds its proof
This is a song about a man

The Olde Souls and the Makeshift Band Columbus, Ohio

Tired of playing boring gigs to bored audiences, a pair of singer-songwriters/lifelong friends decided to join forces and start a band. Assembling a cast of friends around them they formed the Epic (read: Pretentious) Folk group "The Olde Souls". They may never be famous, they may never find their music in regular rotation on radio, but they'll be sure to entertain, and have a good time doing it. ... more
